Default Overflowing on Ex-Large Load
Model Number: WBSR1060T5WW   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Greetings All,
The DW tells me when she uses the EX-LARGE load setting on the washer, it overflows. However, it doesn't overflow when placed on the LARGE load setting. I'm becoming more and more familiar with the inner workings of the washer, after some minor problems with the pump. Does this sound like the water-level switch - some type of obstruction - or ....???
Thanks for any and all help.

Here are the parts
Replacement parts for General Electric WBSR1060T5WW Washer | AppliancePartsPros.com

Odds are it is the switch itself (Item 10 in Section 1) but also could be something weird with the tubing re: only leaks when the pressure in the tube reaches a certain point or a slow leak.

In this case I think I would replace both switch and tubing.

Parts are ordered. I'll let you know the outcome.
Thanks for the help. It is greatly appreciated!

Sounds like you may have an obstruction in either the pressure hose where it connects to the chamber on the side of the outer tub or in the chamber itself.Remove the hose and see if a filmy substance is up inside the hose.this will prevent the pressure from engaging the switch at the correct levels.Taking the hose off of the machine and running hot water through it usually will flush it out.

Okay...I get a little time before the parts come in, I'll check that. Thanks for the suggestion! Now I'm looking for an on-line set of diagrams for taking apart the washer. Had one last year for when I had to fix the dryer, but had a hard drive crash since then and lost all my bookmarks.

Well, I finally got around to the washer, after a short detour on another project. Installed the water level switch and hose. Wife ran one load on "SUPER" and no problems. Since then, each time she tries to run a load on "SUPER", it overflows. I took off the front and watched...... tub fills and a short time after agitation starts, water comes out of the large overflow tubein the left rear of the tub. Now, the water level of the tub is considerably higher on "SUPER" than the level of the "LARGE" setting when filled with water with no clothing. See here. The little box on the side of the tub, towards the front of the tub in front of the overflow tube, gets some water in it during both settings, and it appears to be the same amount for each. I could see some lint in the box floating in water, but it didn't appear to be blocking anything.
I noticed when I installed the new water level switch that there appears to be an adjustment screw in the middle. Would this adjust water level for "SUPER"?
Thanks for any and all help.

If that is where the tub is filling the water level should be ok.

You have one of the old T models that were made when GE first came out with this type washer. One very common problem on these models is that the tub would spin during the wash cycle, which would cause the water to spin out the over flow tube. This was due to faulty lubricant on the brake bearings. When they first started doing this we could change the bearing and re-lubricate but they have discontinued the bearing kits so now you have to replace the whole transmission.

Watch it during wash and if the tub spins during wash you have a bad brake bearing or just bad brakes. In any case you will have to replace the whole transmission.

Do not turn the screw on the water level switch it is preset from the factory.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I don't recall the tub spinning. I'll check it to be sure tomorrow.... and the only remedy is replacing the transmission? Bummer.

Well, I checked and, yeah, the tub is spinning - not a lot like in the spin cycle, but it is gradually turning, which would cause the water to spin out of the tub to the overflow. Guess we'll just use the LARGE setting until it's time to repalce the machine. My other minimal cost solution is to put a hose on the overflow tube and direct the water to a floor drain.

I appreciate everyone's help and input. That's what makes forums, like this one, great. Keep up the good work.
